During April we shared with our members and Fellows the opportunity for one Impactpool member to get a €5000 tuition waiver for the Executive Master in Management of International Organizations (EMMIO) at Impactpool’s partner SDA Bocconi School of Management.

The EMMIO is an opportunity to earn a Master’s in only nine months while taking full advantage of a flexible program schedule compatible with full employment. The programme is addressed to mid and senior level professionals working - or interested to pursue a career - in United Nations and International NGOs.

We are proud to congratulate our Impactpool member and Fellow Virginie Martins de Nobrega on being awarded the waiver!
